|If they would like to start a private practice, I would recommend Networking as much as possible. Meet and talk with friends, physicians, personal trainers, speech pathologists … anyone and everyone who may be a referral source. Also, don’t attempt to be a specialist at everything. Pick an area of nutrition counseling that you would like to make your area of expertise. Additionally, decide what types of nutrition counseling and/or consulting you would like to do. The options are endless.
